Rosa Nutty is a Dublin-based singer-songwriter. Her debut EP ‘Bunny’ was released in August 2015 and was met with critical acclaim. Rosa’s primary focus is strong lyrics and soothing vocal harmonies. The result is a warm, simple yet sophisticated style of music. She has been likened to artists such as Feist and Cat Power.

“Dublin singer-songwriter Rosa Nutty has choral and folk influences and a bright future…[Bunny] suggests a musician as comfortable with choral melodies as she is with an acoustic guitar. The EP is augmented by French horn and cello but it’s Nutty’s voice that shines through”- Nialler9

2015 saw the release of Twisted Arrow, the debut single by ARBORIST. A nonchalant and thoughtful piece of Americana, conceived in Belfast, it features the casual yet unmistakeable tones of KIM DEAL. It premiered on The Line of Best Fit and Stereogum, has had extensive play on BBC 6Music, and featured in The Guardian’s tracks of the week.

Recent shows with luminaries such as Cat Power, Guy Garvey and Echo and the Bunnymen have showcased the songs to an ever increasing audience. New single ‘A Man of My Age’ is a confident, six minute ramble through the day-to-day and a shameless crack at the pop charts. It was released on 1st July 2016.

Their debut album Home Burial is due for release in Autumn 2016.

“This guy’s a master songwriter..his muse is an earth-bound one – full of scruffy moments and care-worn emotional truths. His development will be one of the most intriguing story strands of the year.” – Hot Press Magazine

An R&B/pop singer from Dublin, Aik discovered the path to music while actively trying to complete his degree as a computer scientist – anchoring influences from likes of Michael Jackson, Chris Brown, R Kelly, Ed Sheeran and more. He is always trying to build a range of versatile sounds that would take him away from the ideology of just a genre based artist, but rather someone who exploring sounds of interest and concatenating it to his own personal expression.

His debut single ‘In My Soul’ married trap rhythms with hip-hop, while follow up ‘Heights’ was a smoother tune that brought him sessions with the likes of Joe.ie. Meanwhile, his live band show has seen him win plaudits at festivals such as HWCH and Whelan’s Ones To Watch.

“One of the coolest new acts in the country, the youngster from Dublin made huge waves as his soul, R&B, pop sound dropped….” (Joe.ie)”
